The first and only translation of Li Zongwu's seminal work on "black" strategy. Thick Black Theory is a clasic treatise on Strategy, similar to Sun Tzu's The Art Of War. However, Thick Black Theory is more simple, easier to understand, contains immediately actionable material, and is a higher level of strategic abstraction than The Art Of War. Anyone who loves The Art Of War, Machiavelli, The 48 Laws Of Power, Etc. will also love Thick Black Theory.
